Rack of lamb chocolate sauce salad and bread roll

Don’t know what to cook this Easter? Got rack of lamb and not sure what marinade to rub on? Don’t worry I have found a creative rub for you. I felt like having bread rolls, so I bought the bread rolls. Craving for chocolate, found my chocolate sauce in my fridge which I have made a week or two ago. Check that the chocolate sauce is still edible. Best use it before it go off. At least I clear my fridge for some place in my fridge. I bought rack of lamb on sale.

Here’s another creation using chocolate sauce on rack of lamb this time. I am willing to try and see the taste suit me. Perhaps, this Easter, you would like to serve your family and friends something different. While the children hunt for Easter eggs chocolate. The adults can enjoy chocolate in a different way. Are you a daring person, like me to experiment adding chocolate in meat? I am daring.

Chocolate and steak make an unusual but perfect match, with salad and bread rolls. It’s successful creation, delicious as well as colourful comfort meal. Let’s cook and enjoy a different savoury meal.
